Subject: A Sanatorium for the Poor
This 30s film tells us about the work of the National Jewish Hospital in Denver, a charitable hospital for tuberculosis patients who cant pay for medical treatment. This was back in the days when tuberculosis was a dread, debilitating disease that required years of treatment with dicey chances of success. This is basically your standard-issue look at all the good works were doinggive us money film, but it does have some extra historical value in showing us the tuberculosis treatments of the day, all to an incredibly schmaltzy organ soundtrack.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.

This rah rah for the Denver Jewish Hosptial goes over it's services for tuberclerosis patients. We get a nice tour which is directed by the Hospital's president at the time. We see the many people dedicated to fight this awful disease of the first part of the 20th century, where, as the card says, 2 people died of it in the 14 minutes we watched this film. Historically scary.
